“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8.
Mildred Louise Moore Kinsolving, 85, of Charleston passed from this life to her eternal life with her Savior on Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Mildred was born on November 29, 1930 in Kanawha County. She and her beloved husband, Odie Kinsolving, were married on September 29, 1950. Mildred’s most precious joy in life was being a loving mother to daughters, Ann Kinsolving of Charleston and Mary Beth Hiller (John) of Taylors, South Carolina and son, Athel (Kelly) of Alum Creek.
She has eight grandchildren, Jonathan (Laura) Hiller, Joshua Hiller, Johanna (Daniel) Ellis, Joy (Camille) Ngon A Ngon, Justin Hiller, Lacy Kinsolving, Caleb Kinsolving and Bethany Simmons, who grandmother called her best friend.
Mildred was preceded in death by her mother, Hazel Jones; her second mom, Leah Henderson Polk and beloved husband of 61 years, Odie. She was a 1949 graduate of Walton High School in Roane County. Mildred will be lovingly remembered as a woman who loved the Lord, loved to learn new things and to cook for her family. She could often be found searching for the next best recipe or watching the birds in her yard. On August 30, Mildred’s incredible fight for life came to an end. She courageously fought dementia and heart disease among other health conditions.
Mildred’s family would like to extend heartfelt appreciation to her caregivers and employees of Hospice, her Angels, who made her final months of life comfortable and meaningful. A celebration of Mildred’s life will take place 1:00 p.m. Friday, September 2, 2016 at Curry Funeral Home in Alum Creek with Pastor Frank Chapman officiating. Visitation with the family will be one and a half hours prior to the service. She will be laid to rest beside her loving husband, Odie, in Elk Hills Memorial Gardens in Big Chimney, where they made their home in early years of marriage. Mildred has longed to be with Odie since the day he passed and now, they are reunited.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to HospiceCare, 1606 Kanawha Blvd. W., Charleston, WV 25387.
